Agios Anargrios, Potamos

Me with Eleni Comino at the front entrance of Agios Anargrios in May 2010. The new bell tower above the entrance replaced the old one damaged by a recent earthquake. This is the church where my grandfather, Theo Andronicos was christened in 1881by the priest Panayotis Panaretos, (son of Stavrianos, son of Minas, who were also priests).

Procession in Mitata

This picture is from the collection of Fofo and Brettos Sklavos of Mitata. It was probably taken in the 1960 and shows a procession of children, officials and a priest walking up the road at the edge of Mitata with the council building at the back.

Agios Petros

Lovely and very old little Byzantine church, at the village of Areoi,near Mylopotamos. The photo was taken in the early eighties. I went recently to take the same photo from the same angle, but the hedges are now that overgrown that the church can not be seen from that position.The key can be obtained to view inside this lovely church....

More frescoes on the roof of the Church of the Virgin Mary of Ilariotissa.

They are magnificent but there is a major problem.

Water is seaping through from the roof, when it rains, and damaging these priceless works of art. Water is not only destroying the frescoes, but lighting and other accoutrements on, and around, the ceiling, as well.

Aid with roof repairs, and damp proofing of the roof to the church oft the Panagia, Virgin Mary, of Ilariotissa in Potamos

Magnificent interior of the Church of Ayios Haralmbos, Karavas.

The Church is one of the best maintained in the island.

Most of the interior is in superb condition, but some dampness has recently developed on the southern wall.

This has been discussed previously:

Theo Kapatanios Poulos & George Hihlis Poulos, Executive Members of the Karavitiko Symposium, Sydney, examined the damage in September 2008.

Outline as to how the damage occurred

Father Panayoti Diakopoulos, and Theo Kapatanios Poulos,

at the Church of Ayios Haralambos. Karavas, September, 2008.

They have just completed inspecting some of the damage caused by dampness in the church.

Theo Kapatanios Poulos is an Executive Member of the Karavitiko Symposium, Sydney.

Outline as to how the damage occurred

A row of large trees had been planted in the earth about 3 metres to the left of the southern side wall of the Church at Ayios Haralambos.

Front steps. Ayios Haralambos Church, Karavas.

The steps have been raised by natural causes over the years, causing the water to flow back into the Church.

This is one of two dampness problems effecting Ayios Haralambos at the moment.

The first is that, a row of large trees had been planted in the earth about 3 metres to the left of the southern side wall of the Church at Ayios Haralambos.

Over time the roots raised the cocncrete slab that buts up to the Church on the right.

Longer view of the southern side of the Church of Ayios Haralambos, Karavas

Note the earth surround on the left hand (southern) side.

A row of large trees had been planted in the earth there. Over time the roots raised the cocncrete slab that buts up to the Church on the right.

This caused water to gather against the lower face of the wall, causing, for the first time, moisture to "capillary feed" to the interior of the church.

This problem needs to be rectified as quickly as possible.

The solution is to break up ...

Tree stump. Southern verge, Church of Ayios Haralambos, Karavas.

The story of why this tree stump is important enough to photograph, ensures:

In the past, a row of large trees had been planted in the verge that lies to the south of the Church of Ayios Haralambos, Karavas.
